Houston -

(AP) - Three officers have been shot while serving a family violence warrant at a Houston-area home and the suspected gunman still isn't in custody.
  
The Harris County Sheriff's Office tweeted that one deputy and two officers from the Texas Attorney General's Office were wounded Tuesday afternoon. Sheriff Ed Gonzalez says the injuries are not life-threatening and the officers were being treated at a Houston hospital.
  
Chief Deputy Edison Toquica says agents from the AG's office and sheriff's investigators were serving a warrant, at the threshold of a door, when the suspect began shooting. Officers returned fire.
  
Toquica says the warrant for Daniel Trevino involves violation of a protective order. He says the suspect is still believed to be in the home.
  
The sheriff also says a motorcycle deputy was in an accident while assisting with traffic control nearby. The deputy was conscious and stable.

Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick made the following statement Tuesday in response: 

“We must never forget that our law enforcement officers risk their lives for us every day. Today, a Harris County Deputy Sheriff and two law enforcement officers from the Attorney General’s Office were wounded in the line of duty. Later this afternoon, an El Paso police officer was also wounded when shots were fired at him. Fewer than a hundred thousand law enforcement officers have taken on the job of protecting millions of Texans. Please keep their families and their law enforcement agencies in your prayers.”
